Wow I can’t believe that I have had my very own blog for two years now! Quite often I have these “brilliant ideas” and they last a few days or weeks, then nothing ever comes of them. I did wonder if my blog would be another one of those things. It sounded like a good idea, but then when the hard work kicks in I might not be so enthusiastic. I am really pleased to say that it hasn’t been one of those things at all. My blog is growing stronger than ever and I have no plans to stop. To be honest, I can’t see my life without blogging being a part of it now. That’s not to say it’s the be all and end all and I couldn’t possibly survive without it. But it has become my passion, my way of being creative, my way of using my brain and my way of letting off steam. For as long as blogs exist in the world, I am pretty sure that I will be doing them. So I’m sorry guys, you’re stuck with me! 😀
Blogging helps me to feel like I’m doing something useful with my time and making my mark on the world. Everybody has something that they love doing. It’s not always obvious what it is at first, but eventually it will become clear. When I was at school I never saw myself as a writer. I was awful at writing stories and understanding poems. If I was given something to write about, most of the time I just didn’t have a clue where to start. What I didn’t realise until I started blogging is that I was just trying to write about the wrong things. I can’t write stories or articles about something that doesn’t really interest me. But if it is left to me to chose what I write about, then I can do it. I just have to find something that I’m passionate about, then when I do, the words just come pouring out. It was the same kind of thing with PE at school. I used to absolutely dread PE every single time, unless we were doing trampolining. Now trampolining I could do all day. So sometimes, you can end up enjoying something that you really don’t expect. It’s just because you haven’t found your way of doing it yet, the way that works for you. When you do, you’ll realise what you have been missing out on all that time.
I would just like to say a huge thank you to all of you for supporting me with my blog and helping it to become what it is. And thank you to my family and close friends for putting up with me and being patient with me through a very tough year. It all really does mean so much to me.
